Building of my 8 string Stauffer guitar

Post by Tomzooki » Mon Aug 28, 2017 7:04 pm

I ordered a copy of 8 string Stauffer guitar from Miodrag Zerdoner, who is also a very fine guitarist. I asked him to send me pictures of the making. Here are the sides:

Awesome! That looks like a nice cut of birdseye, it's going to look great with a finish on it.
I love these kinds of guitars, so I can't wait to see the result.

Awesome, how long do you expect the build to take?
I'd love to hear it when it's done!

I did a search on Miodrag, looks like he's built some of these before but I don't see any videos or sound clips of them in action.
